The Best Tips On Getting More Traffic to Your Website

Hello,

You have a business on the internet. You feel you sell good products or provide excellent services and now you just need to get the word out to everyone. You have already told your friends and family and hope they tell others as well, but what you really want is for your web traffic to take off sky high. The only problem is you do not have a large amount of cash to invest into a huge advertising campaign.

Regardless of all of that you are luck. The free technique I am about to tell you about will drive just as much traffic to your website as a paid one, if you are willing to put the time and effort in.

But before I get to that I have to say this. If your website is poorly designed or lacks simple navigation, any website traffic you do get will leave faster than they arrived. So make sure you find a good web developer to take a look and review your site before you begin this free marketing campaign to make sure you aren't wasting your time and talent.

The free marketing technique I am talking about is called article marketing. This is the process where you write an informational and educational article related to the content of your website and submit that article to various article directories on the internet.

Let me explain in more detail. The first step is to write an article that is related to the content of your website. So let's say you sell laptop computers. You can write an article reviewing the top five external hard drives, or how to keep your computer running fast and smooth. As you can see the article is related to computers and it provides useful information to the reader.

The next step is to create your resource box. A resource box is the area where you will tell the reader of the article a little about yourself and your website. An example resource box would be, "Jane Thompson is the owner of DEF Computer Systems, an online retailer of laptop computers. You can learn more about Ms. Thompson or DEF by visiting their website at {insert your web address here}." This example clearly states who the writer of the article is, where they get their computer experience from and most importantly a clickable link the website.

With article and resource box in had it is time to submit this information to article directories. Article directories are websites dedicated to allowing website owners such as you to submit useful content. They receive tens of thousands of hits a day from people either looking to read useful information or would like to take this information and post it on their websites or blogs, a method called syndication. When they post your article on their own websites or blogs they do so with your resource box and the link to your website. As you can see if you wrote one quality article per day your website could be all over the internet in no time. I have personally helped friends who went from zero hits to over two thousand hits per day in less than thirty days, all for free!

Now that you know the technique, simply repeat this process everyday for as long as you are in business, which is hopefully a very long time. Add the Google Analytics tool to your website so you can track your visitors and find out where they are coming from and use this information to fine tune your articles and which article directories to use more often.

Thank you

Re: The Best Tips On Getting More Traffic to Your Website

Hello Friends,
There are thousands of sites out there that will sell you hits to your website. The big ones you may know are Google, AltaVista, Overture etc. However, these are mostly overpriced as they work on a bidding system where you bid against others on keywords. For example, if you type "Christian Web Hosting" on Google you get all those links on the right and the top. These are paid advertising links. Every time you click a link, the advertiser pays ... up to $50.00 for a click! I don't know about you but I certainly won't pay that kind of money for a click. The more "valuable" the word or phrase, the more you have to bid in order to get your site near the top. Crazy huh?
niche market indices
There are several Christian sites -- big and small -- offering this kind of advertising for a price. Shop around to find the best one for you. They come in two flavors:
Pay per click
Pay per month/year etc. (Recommended if the site has qualified traffic and enough hits).
pop-under and pop-up advertising:-The name is exactly what it sounds like. The first one hides the popped-up page behind your current browser window and the second is a more "in your face" approach where the popped-up page is on top. Many people use pop-up killers these days and the trend is for more and more people to use software that blocks them. It's was a good form of advertising in the 90's - and the cheapest - but but these days most browsers block popups, so it's not a good idea to spend your money on this.
redirected traffic:-A relatively new development is redirected traffic reselling. How it works is that people buy up old domain names -- sometimes by the thousands. These are all kinds of domains. For example, companies that went ****, old websites that were abandon by the original owners etc etc. These domains still get traffic simply because they are listed in the search engines and they come up from time to time when people search for certain words.
"Social Networking" sites:-I put this in quotes because this would include everything from YouTube to Twitter to the mega blogging sites and everything in between. All good and all will generate some hits, just be careful not to overdo it: getting yourself banned on Youtube or your blog about your website on blogspot is so obviously an ad doesn't help. People want information, not more ads; we all get them up to our eyeballs on radio and TV every day. Be informative, give information but don't advertise.
Thanks.

Re: The Best Tips On Getting More Traffic to Your Website

Getting traffic to your website is really a matter of asking two questions. Do I want traffic fast or traffic slow? The obvious answer is traffic fast. To get the really fast traffic you will need to invest in PPC. PPC stand for pay per click. These are the ads that run along the right side of the search engine results.

But if you are going to use PPC you really have to know what you are doing or you will just be throwing away money. I suggest reading up on PPC before you just dive right into it.

Here are few quick tips:

* Make one ad group per keyword
* Make two ads per keyword - This is used for testing
* Start out only using phrase and exact match
* Make sure your keyword is in the title of your ad
* Write an exciting ad to get them to click and go to your website

Trust me there are many more ppc tips to getting traffic to your website but we will go over that in another article. PPC is hands down the fastest way to get traffic. I recommend it if you have an actual budget of a few hundred dollars per month.

So what's another way to get traffic to your website. I will give you a hint. You are doing it right now. Yep, you are reading my article. So how did that happen. Well it started with me writing the article and getting it published on this article directory.

Article marketing is another great way to get traffic to your website. Best of all it is completely free. Submitting your articles to article directories just like this one is a great way to get highly targeted traffic. Not just regular traffic.

By getting this highly targeted traffic you can convert better on your website because you are catering to the people you need to be catering to.

Article marketing is also great because search engines love them. These sites provide a ton of content for the search engines so they love to visit these sites and your article can end up on the search engine results page for your selected keyword or keywords. So not only are you getting reading from the article directory you are getting exposed to thousands of searches a month for free. What's better than that?

Re: The Best Tips On Getting More Traffic to Your Website

It you are trying to get visitors to your site in a new niche market you are going to have to make sure you are focused on getting them to your site using the best traffic source in the market. In this article I want to show you exactly how to figure out which is the best traffic.
The most important thing you can do is spend some time and figure out where all your competition is spending money. The reason that you need to do this is because you have to make sure you can also advertise in those places as well.
If you see that all your competition is advertising using one source in your niche, that is the place you need to be running your ads as well.
You need to understand that if your competitors were not making more money then they were spending, they would not be advertising in the places that they are! Don't make the mistake that most new people make and try and avoid all the other people in your niche market and find sources that no one else is using. If you do this you will end up using the sources that all the other marketers have tried and failed at.
You need to realize that if you are in a niche that is older then about 5 years, most of the advertisers have probably tried all the marketing channels and are now using the ones that work. Make sure you go where the money is & you will likely get more visitors to your site and succeed as well.
